As global sentiment pushes to reduce excessive use of materials and decrease global CO2 levels, wood is slated to gain mainstream exposure as the ideal building material for tall buildings. These tall wood buildings are revolutionizing skylines, revitalizing local timber industries and ushering in a sustainability renaissance in all aspects of building, from architecture to carpentry. It’s certainly an exciting time to be an architect.
